Nic Dobbs

A love for adventure and a passion for sharing it describes Nic best. Nic has been an Ice Fest Instructor/Guide since 2010 and looks forward to the cold hard winters in the Upper Peninsula. Nic learned to climb when he moved to the U.P. in 2006 and has grown his hobby into a lifestyle. 

Most of the year you can find Nic traveling around the Midwest repping great brands like Osprey, Yakima, and Cascade Designs. Nic puts on around 20,000 miles a year sharing his love for climbing and just about anything outside. In the winter he puts on his ice boots and spends all his free time exploring the Ice Climbs that the Upper Peninsula and surrounding areas have to offer. 

As a graduate of NMU in 2010, Nic has planted his roots in the Upper Peninsula and hopes to show others just how beautiful and special this place is.
